I've stalled

This morning the scale once again said 50.8.

Perhaps those of you who said I'll never lose the weight are feeling good in your skin.

There's nothing more motivating than announcing your diet on the internet. But Thursday night I only got 3 hours of sleep (partly because I was starving, partly because The Lorax just woudn't sleep). I've never know sleep deprivation like I've experienced the last few weeks (now that I'm starting formal Danish lessons and work) and it is hard to lose weight while sleep-deprived. At least that's been my experience. (Happily I slept a solid 9 hours last night!)

Plus it takes a long time to recover from a road marathon. I still can't run with any sort of speed. I have developed a strange quadriceps tendinitis over my left knee. It didn't show up until a week after the race.

Well, I'm just rambling now.
Enjoy the weekend!

Well, Sea Legs, I have to admit that I just ate some chocolate before reading your post! ;-) Your stall is probably temporary - but I wonder if some cross-training or interval training could get you back on track? Something your body isn't used to (like kickboxing, for example) that would not involve repetitive strain on your knees?

I'm about to try that myself because I am just so tired of running on the treadmill and am a big wimp about running outside in the winter.

Glad your little one let you get some sleep! He is awfully cute.

There's no doubt in my mind that you can lose it. Patience grasshopper.

Maybe it's time to whip out the infamous oatmeal diet :p I'll mail you oatmeal if you need it.

Just commenting to say that I really hope (and can only assume) that anyone who voted "all moms are destined to be overweight" was totally joking. Right? Right?
If not, then, to them I say: How rude! Pfbbbbbt!
No one could possibly read your blog and think that about you, though, so I feel I can sleep comfortably at night knowing that these people were just kidding.
